A Fresh Cup is Mike Gunderloy's software development weblog, covering Ruby on Rails and whatever else I find interesting in the universe of software. I'm a full-time software developer: most of my time in recent years has been spent writing Rails, though I've dabbled in many other things and like most people who have been writing code for decades I can learn new stuff as needed.

Currently I'm unemployed and starting to look around for my next opportunity as a senior manager, team lead, or lead developer. Drop me a comment if you're interested or email MikeG1 [at] larkfarm.com.

What's New in Edge Rails #39

Week of September 17 - September 23, 2012

Along with changes to the code itself, the Rails Guides have now been converted from Textile to Markdown. As someone who had to work with the Textile version in the past I'm quite happy with this.

  • The new ruby template handler extension has changed from .rb to .ruby as of de1060f4, to avoid conflicts with mustache views.
  • As of c49d959e the code from strong_parameters is integrated directly into Rails. All Action Controller parameters must now be explicitly permitted before they can be used in Active Model mass assignments.
  • As of 392eeecc Rails allows specifying the transaction isolation level in Active Record (if your database supports it).
  • It's an early draft, but the Rails 4.0 Release Notes are now on the Edge Guides site.
